Facades of burnt wood

One of our primary operations is the production of burnt wood for facades. Our craftsmen have mastered the centuries-old Japanese burning technology known as “SHOU SUGI BAN”. Recently, it has gained significant popularity worldwide among individuals seeking unconventional, eco-friendly, and natural products for their homes.

We can guarantee that your home facade will stand out from neighboring houses and will have a longer lifespan if you choose this specific Japanese charring technology.

What is the 'SHOU SUGI BAN' technology?

In short, it’s a traditional Japanese wood burning technology, also known as Yakisugi. Initially, the wood is heated at a specific temperature, then it’s left to cool down, after which the charred layer is brushed off with special brushes. Finally, the surface is coated with a natural oil and given your chosen shade.

The Origin of "SHOU SUGI BAN" or "Yakisugi"

Even if you have never heard these words, chances are you have already seen pictures of “Yakisugi” planks. This wood-burning process is known as “SHOU SUGI BAN” in the Western world. The name arose from a misinterpretation of the Japanese term, which is why you might encounter these two different terms in various sources, although they essentially mean the same thing when translated from Japanese – “burnt cedar”.

Traditionally, cedar was used in the East, but today, as technology has advanced, other types of trees can also be used. In our markets, the most popular are spruce, pine, and mahogany.

This ingenious technology dates back centuries. It is believed to have originated around the 18th century. This technique creates a charred appearance, highlights the natural grain of the wood, and the brightness and texture of the surface can be adjusted by choosing different types of wood or levels of charring.

While it might seem counterintuitive, the burning process actually makes the wood stronger and more resilient. In Japan, this technique was used even before the introduction of paint or oil protection for cladding.

Advantages of burnt wood facade

  • Fire resistance. Charred wood is more difficult to ignite, making it safer.
  • Aesthetics. The appearance of charred wood changes; it becomes darker, its texture is highlighted, and it also looks more solid and luxurious.
  • Eazy Maintenance. Charred wood facade or terrace boards used outdoors do not require annual maintenance. After 6-8 years, it is recommended to renew them with a layer of oil.
  • Protection from pests. The burning process destroys harmful organisms in the wood, such as fungi and insects. Also, all the sugars in the wood are completely burned out, making the wood “unpalatable” to parasites.
  • Longevity. The planks become more durable, stronger, resistant to weather conditions, moisture, UV rays, mold and fungus, so they last longer.

How is the wood prepared for a home facade cladding?

  1. In our factory, we have the highest quality Scandinavian, fully dried spruce, pine, or mahogany wood.
  2. We burn boards of the required size at high temperatures, in special machines. This step gives the wood a rich hue and enhances its texture.
  3. Once the wood has cooled, we use special brushes to remove the charred layer from the boards. At this stage, the wood acquires a distinctive pattern.
  4. We meticulously remove all impurities.
  5. The final step is oiling with natural oils and staining in your chosen shade.

Is it worth choosing burnt wood for the house facade cladding?

The house facade is the home’s calling card. What is the most important aspect of a house’s exterior? It is, of course, the appearance, durability, and maintenance. And these three qualities are also the strengths of charred wood.

Therefore, if you like wood finishes, don’t think any longer because charring is the best way to process wood for your home’s facade.

Maintenance of burnt wood facade

If you choose our burnt wood, then we have good news for you, because the part of the house that will be on the eastern / southern side will not require maintenance for 6-8 years, and on the western / northern side even for 10-12 years. After that, a one-layer oil re-coating is required. Following all the instructions, the product can last up to 80 years.
